Sightseeing - New - Hilly - Trending

This ride is a tour of Cape Ann on the north shore of Massachusetts, first settled by the English in 1623. It starts in the fishing town of Gloucester and runs counter-clockwise along the coast for some great ocean views near Good Harbor before coming to the town of Rockport (home of the famous and oft-painted fishing shack known as Motif No. 1) for some more scenic ocean views and the popular tourist area of Bearskin Neck. It continues through some rolling hills around the top of Cape Ann and back to Annisquam, where a wooden bridge spans Lobster Cove, before heading back into Gloucester at Stage Fort Park.
